Over Inspired


Photosource: Bresson

Write Sunshine!
I'm the first to recognize that lately I've been neglecting my column… not because I've reached some kind of writer’s block: on the contraire! My problem is the fact that there's so much going through my mind that I don't know where to grab.

Write something! Anything
What? When all that matters is the sentiment and anyone that's ever been in love will know what I'm feeling.

Write about the feeling!
How? When it's so abstract that no amount of adjectives do it justice? Why attempt to explain something that needs no explanation?
More important that writing about great moments is living them but when it comes to love, the most trivial of moments gain significance and only those who have ever loved will know…

Know what?...
The security and belonging felt when he holds your hand…
The small leap of joy when his name appears on the call display…
The vibrating sound of your name on his lips…
The warmth felt from his smile…

And that's just the tip of the iceberg…
Because he’ll wait in the rain with an umbrella for you;
Get in a little later just to spend more time with you in the morning;
He’ll e-mail you in the middle of the afternoon;
He’ll drive 80km just to be with you.

And the things he says are more than just words…
It's the way he looks at you before telling you that you're beautiful;
The messages he sends you, telling you how you make him feel;
His choice of words when he introduces you to his friends;
The split second before and after he tells you that he loves you.

Moments.
Too special, too precious to attempt a description.
Intensely so that I lose my capacity of expression…
Because what comes from the heart has a universal language that is felt but not written.
It's there somewhere between my heart, my smile and the twinkle in my eye.

Better live and not tell that to tell something and not to live.

I confess that i visit the blog almost everyday, but your's is one i know that most of the "silence" is a sign that you're living your life and a happy one.

As for expressing things, well try to publish occasionally a photo, someone said that a picture worth a thousand words. I see your happy face and i see the hapiness. Of course that are other just impossible to show or describe.

kisses

Love makes us laugh and cry so easily, that sometimes, words are unnecessary...

live each day, and keep the simple things as diamonds...

the most important, is, live the love with the one that love´s you the same way do love him...

kisses from a girl that loves every word you write...

Luis Sardinha: Words can´t express every moment, but that doesn´t stop me from trying... ;)

DRC: I had a fabulous sticker on my suitcase when I was a teenager that said "Say we did but don´t? Hell! Let´s do and say you didn´t!"
Don´t worry my friend... I´ll always be here, sometimes more often than others.

Storm: I´m never speechless! Just temporaraly silenced by the moment ;)

Sophia: From what you wrote, my guess is that you´ll be just as successful in english as in portuguese... the important thing is to express yourself the way and in the language that feels right to you.
PS. Sometimes there are things that only seem to come out right in portuguese ;)
